A Letter of Approval (LOA) is a letter that an ordained member of leadership in The Satanic Temple sends to the Ordination Council at the request of a candidate that describes the leader’s relationship to the candidate and an assessment of the candidate’s fitness for becoming an ordained Minister of Satan.
The LOA is required for a candidate to successfully complete the Ordination Program and become a Minister of Satan; it is not required to graduate from the Non-Ordination (Coursework Only) Program.
